I've been running into something that I find to be an awkward situation on Stack Overflow. That is, when I am typing up what I consider to be a helpful answer and then the message:
X new answers have been posted - load these new answers pops up and it is clear that one ore many of these posts answer the question, should I continue with my answer?
If it's a fairly simple question, I usually just discard it, but often times I will have spent a decent amount of time thinking over the answer and debugging the code. It is considered "obnoxious" to basically repeat whats been said if someone has given a very helpful and all encompassing answer?
Also being under 50 reputation, if I have something to in my answer that might improve the code that hasn't been mentioned, but most of my answer is still composed of whats already been said, should I just post it as an answer and remove the repetitive things?
I was just wondering what other users do when this happens.
